PLANO, Texas (Sept. 26, 2013) - In response to inquiries, JCPenney said today that it is pleased with its progress thus far in the Company's turnaround efforts and the traction its initiatives are starting to achieve. Moreover, the Company said it is starting to see greater predictability in its performance across many areas.
The Company continues to be encouraged by improvements in purchase conversion both in store and on jcp.com, primarily due to being back in stock in key items and sizes the customer expects to find at JCPenney. Overall sales on jcp.com continue to trend double digits ahead of last year.
The Company still anticipates it will experience positive comparable store sales trends coming out of the third quarter and throughout the fourth quarter of 2013.
